Located on the corner of Navarre Avenue and Wynn Road, The Gardens of St. Francis offers independent and assisted living, long-term care, skilled nursing, and rehabilitation.
The Gardens of St. Francis senior living community is located across from Pearson Park. The Little Sisters of the Poor transferred ownership of its Oregon campus to CHI Living Communities in February. The campus offers long-term care, assisted living, and independent living, along with skilled nursing and rehabilitation.
To introduce the community to its independent living apartments, The Gardens of St. Francis is hosting open houses on Sunday, April 28 and Saturday, May 4 from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
“Our residents enjoy wonderful things on our campus, but it’s the friendships and sense of community here that make The Gardens of St. Francis home,” said Curtis Woodward, executive director. “We share stories, laughter, smiles, and faith, the good things in life.”
Visitors will visit an independent living apartment, learn more about resident activities, tour the campus, including the chapel, and taste some treats prepared by the culinary team. The first 15 visitors to arrive and complete a tour will enter into a drawing for a Fitbit.
The Gardens of St. Francis offers independent living residents home-style meals prepared by a culinary team, gardens for walking and meditation, and a range of activities to keep residents busy.
Residents may take advantage of the nostalgic soda shop, salon for hair care needs, a library, game room, and much more.
The campus also has a chapel that offers religious services for all faiths, as well as a daily Mass.
A perfect stepping stone from hospital to home
The Gardens of St. Francis’ reputation for long-term care services extends to care for skilled nursing and rehabilitation, offering short skilled nursing stays for recuperation from hospital to home, if required.
The Medicare-certified rehabilitation program cares for individuals recovering from cardiac conditions, stroke, fractures, joint replacements and more.
According to Woodward, families, residents, and staff have been extremely receptive to the new ownership and name change.
“CHI Living Communities is honoring our legacy, while expanding our mission with its experience and resources for the campus,” Woodward said. “We are exploring some exciting new services for the Oregon community that we will announce later in the year. We invite families in the area to stop in and say ‘hello’ and find out why we say ‘home is here’ at The Gardens of St. Francis.”
“The Gardens of St. Francis is now part of a faith-based ministry that began in Northwest Ohio and is locally based,” said Rick Ryan, president/CEO. “CHI Living Communities currently has 13 campuses across the United States serving more than 2,500 residents and employing around 2,000.
“Those shared services help us to lead with care and meet the body, mind, and spirit needs of each person in the most dignified and faith-based manner possible,” he said.
